Your family just loves pancakes at breakfast and perhaps at other times of day as well. The problem is the difficulty of quickly reproducing consistently perfect pancakes at the drop of a hat, not to mention the accompanying mess all over the stove. Recent trends have produced an answer in the form of the latest piece of kitchen equipment to grace our homes - the electric waffle maker machine. The following video shows a product review of one of the models currently on the market:
People who like pancakes are taking to this kitchen appliance in a big way. As well as offering a much cleaner way to prepare and cook, waffles extend the range of what is possible with batter based recipes. The usual ingredients of a waffle encompass a variety of ingredients, both healthy and some not so healthy but still delicious ones. If healthy eating is your thing, then you can just use your favorite whole grain products that are lower in fat than regular ones. It is easy to toss in a tasty fruit etc. to give an extra healthy element while reaping the benefit from vitamins and anti-oxidants that nourish the body.
At home use of a waffle maker allows you full control of what you eat, as opposed to not knowing 100% of what goes into shop-bought products which are likely to have artificial additives and flavorings.
The waffle maker machine is not limited to use only at breakfast time. Most modern machines are versatile enough to provide tasty treats as snacks throughout the day and with perfectly chosen ingredients, have been known to provide some of the most luxurious dinner desserts imaginable. Indeed, you will be hard pushed not to have noticed the social media chatter around waffles and waffle makers in which some of the recipes discussed sound quite awesome.
So, what should you look for when setting out to choose a waffle maker for your kitchen? Firstly, remember that if you have the right recipe and the right equipment, you will produce the perfect waffle every time. You need to follow your detailed perfect recipe every time and then the right waffle maker will tightly control all the other baking variables for you.
In looking at any machine from the top manufacturers such as Cuisinart, Presto, Oster, All-Clad and Black and Decker, checkout the design/color to ensure you will be happy with it sitting in your kitchen and the check size and weight to ensure it will fit into your intended storage space easily. Only then should you look at each model's specific features. These vary between machines dependent on number and types of additional features available, but all machines will have means to control poer, baking temperature and baking time. Possible additional features include 'process complete' warning indicator and digital display screens to show current status throughout the process.
In addition to these controls, you will work more happily if the machine has a drip tray for any overflow of batter, non-stick plates that are removable and an aluminium or stainless steel casing for easy cleaning.
